Thank you Dulcify :)
she's not a racehorse... shame that really as I think she would have been a good one. She's quick! And her full brother is running and apparently doing quite well for himself. Unfortunately she's presently unsound and we don't know what's going on for sure. Vet's provisional diagnosis, pending x-rays, is OCD which apparently is very common in TB's especially those, like Magic, that are built large for their age. She's got a pretty big body considering she's only 2.
The other thing stopping her from racing is that I don't have her papers. She's not named in the studbook, but she IS there, DNA'd and microchipped. Her previous owner was giving her away for free right when I was looking for a reasonably cheap quality young TB to bring on [for showjumping, a bit of eventing, and maybe some showing] so stupid me didn't even think to check for soundness. I wouldn't have figured an unbroken 2yo would have soundness issues but then again an unbroken 2yo TB that was intended for racing is unbroken for a reason.
I did ask for some sort of proof of ownership and all I got was a bit of paper signed by the guy's agent stating that she'd been given to me [but it has the wrong brands on it because the agent thought the 5 on her nearside shoulder was a 3, so it wouldn't hold up in court or anything]... I was kind of hoping for a foal card at least, but hey, not many TB's go to equestrian homes with their papers in tow.
A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE
